Molteni&C dedicated its Gio Ponti Collection to the great Milanese master. Twelve different objects, expressions of the creativity and versatility of Ponti’s work and personality. Some are public pieces, commissioned by major industries, some unique and private originally designed for his home or customers. Others are pure Gio Ponti’s intuitions, drawings and sketches found in his archives.
All of them are expressions of Gio Ponti’s architecture and show Molteni&C’s passion for great architects.

"I am grateful to Anala and Armando Planchart for letting me honour their home with Italian art works, alongside the works of Venezuelan and international abstract artists and those of the great Venezuelan master Reveron (...). These range from Morandi paintings to those of Campigli, Melotti and Rui, the Venini and Seguso glasses, Gambone ceramics, and Ferrari silks..."
Gio Ponti, Domus 1961

The Plancharts commissioned Gio Ponti to design their home, on top of a cerro overlooking Caracas. For them, refined art collectors and Italy lovers, Ponti designed everything, from the structure to the furniture. This armchair is a shell to accommodate precious friends. It is a sculpture among sculptures and an art work among the art works.


The armchair, on the other hand, was designed for one of the projects closest to Gio Ponti’s heart, the villa of the Planchart collectors in Caracas (1953-57). It is part of the Gio Ponti Collection, which was curated by Molteni&C under the artistic direction of Studio Cerri & Associati.

The best designs are timeless and this revisited edition respects that, by renovating and reviving the project’s soul. New technologies, materials, functional solutions, with respect for its original – exactly as Gio Ponti would have wanted.


This year the Molteni&C Collection designed by Gio Ponti is enriched with the D.355.1 hanging bookcase.

Designed in the 1950s for M. Singer&Sons, one of the most important furnishing companies in New York, this small table is part of a collection for the American market. The combination of different shapes and materials testifies to Gio Ponti’s diversity and innovative power.

Small tables

Architecture, a pan virtuosity, acrobatic proportions and an intersection of joints. An infinite table which is a geometric dialogue between the glass and rosewood – lightness and abstraction distilled.

"Recreating pieces that were never produced, (because Ponti used to design more than what he could have produced) or re-editing forgotten pieces, gives us the opportunity to better understand his personality, work and role in an important moment of Italian architecture"
Salvatore Licitra, Gio Ponti Archivist

The drawer unit designed in different variations between 1952 and 1955, is based on the original drawings kept by the Gio Ponti Archives. The art direction of this new edition was entrusted to Studio Cerri & Associati.

Single Units

"To be comfortably seated while crossing your legs, little sitting and much backrest, tilted just like this, are necessary."
Gio Ponti

Molteni&C re-launches folding chairs designed by Gio Ponti in 1970 with a new and surprising look.

"The metal tube chair and table have an absolute original form, clearly distinguished from any of the traditional frames. They have a new practicality and elasticity, closer to the modern essential requirements. At the same time, their series-construction, can guarantee their form’s absolute perfection of beauty, in absolute conformity to the first model created by the artist."
Gio Ponti, Domus, 1939
